Halloween was so fun this year. We went to our ward Fall party/chili cook off, which included trick or treating through the hallways. I made Carl and my costume the day of the party (more like two hours beforehand...) and Ezra's came from toys r us.
On Monday, the day of Halloween, Ezra and I took pictures in the morning, went trick or treating with some lovely friends at the Medical College, and then concluded the evening with tasty spooky ( mostly just tasty :) treats at the Harkers. I'm so glad Carl got out of class early and was able to join us for the evening festivities.
We didn't carve pumpkins this year just because we didn't have anywhere to put them. Nor did we have much family time to set aside for just pumpkins, but oddly enough, it wasn't a big deal. It will be I'm sure when Ezra is older and wants a pumpkin to carve :) We did however buy a baby pumpkin at Trader Joe's for Ezra to play with, which he just adores.
Enjoy these pics!

|see, he just loves that pumpkin!|
My mama came to visit us two weeks ago and it was so nice. Ezra loved having his "pua pua" here and playing all day long. It was nice and relaxing to visit and see my mom for several days in a row. Carl and I even went out on a date! It was a glorious 5 days and we all miss my mother dearly. Visitors are always welcome here!
|we went to Apple Holler down past Milwaukee and enjoyed some fall activites. My aunt carol also came, but I didn't get any pictures of all of us. It was a fun fall activity though!|
|he screamed, not cried, when he first encountered the goats, but then he couldn't get enough of them afterwards and even wanted to feed them, though he didn't quite build up the courage to get his hand close enough.|

Happy fall to all of you bloggerees! Also, I just started a crafting blog for fun. It's in effort to document my crafty side and also to encourage me to keep my creative juices flowing. Feel free to visit: harmonizedlaughter.blogspot.com!
